Bandai Namco has announced that Digimon ReArise is coming west this year via iOS and Android devices sometime, though when exactly, hasn't been divulged. As you may know, the smartphone game first launched in Japan in 2018, where it's been quite popular. In addition to announcing the game is coming west, Bandai Namco has also opened up pre-registrations on both the App Store and Google Play.

To accompany the news, Bandai Namco has also released a brand-new trailer for the RPG, though it doesn't really show off what the game is really about. In the game, an unknown Digimon calling itself Herissmon appears in your phone, which is then followed by a sudden attack by Spirals, who are described as a "mysterious force."

As mentioned above, the trailer doesn't really do a good job at revealing what the game is about. So, if you want to know more, you can read the official rundown of key features below:

  • A story connecting Digimon and Tamers
